Wholegrains are essential for good gut health. A countless number of scientific studies have showcased the power of fibre, from wholegrains in particular, in the management of good bowel health and the prevention of cancer. As someone who manages genetic IBS and who's Mum died very young of cancer originally starting in the breast a diet high in fibre, particularly from wholegrains is crucial to my sense of wellbeing and good gut health.
Starting the day with a wholegrain breakfast is the best thing you can do for your precious tummy in the morning. If like me you like spreads, toast and coffee as part of a happy morning routine then making a batch of scones at the beginning if each week is a massive investment in your tummy's happiness for the week ahead.
To the scones, toasted or un-toasted, add nut butters, salted butter, bananas, avocados, fermented fruits, egg salad, cheese and tomato, hummus, smoked anchovies, stewed apple with chopped up dates, the options are endless! The most important thing is that you're having these toppings on some quality wholegrains.
